  1. Enable the included datasource, either via the creation of an entirely new one in the ColdFusion Administrator or by transferring the included tables to an existing datasource.
  2. Integrate the rating system into your existing cart software.
    • If you plan on having your visitors pick their geographic region for proper assignment of UPS' Extended Area Surcharge, use the demo files runme.cfm, runme_entryform.cfm and runme_results.cfm.
    • If you plan on using the AutoXArea=Y feature (v1.41 and above) use autoxarea_entryform.cfm and autoxarea_results.cfm as your examples (note this demo was kept very simple). This method results in the easiest, most free-flowing checkout forms.
  3. Install the locally-specific zone table. Instructions are linked at left.
  4. Transfer the request variable settings in application.cfm to your own existing application.cfm.  Set them as needed (leave the database username and password as-is if you don't need to use them).
  5. If you want to take advantage of the optional surcharge administrative application, get a free copy of GridMonger and unzip it to a temp folder.  Remove all files from the root gridmonger folder except gridmonger.cfm and gridmonger.css.  Copy the remaining files and subfolders to UPSR's /admin/ subfolder.  The surcharge admin application is now workable from UPSR's admin interface.

The Admin interface for zone files allows a user to create tables and import data into a datasource on your system. Don't leave these files on a production server without taking appropriate security precautions.
